It's called to deploy the application. I'm sure Netbeans offers support for that.

There's also another option and that's to generate a true .exe,

With this so called "native compiler" your Java program is compiled to machine language rather than bytecode.

Unfortunateley it's not free but there's a free trial version.

Thanks alot. This will help me how to deploy a project.

And again. Is it the same even for a web based application.

According to me one more option is of creating bat file.
Write your commands in bat file and it will work as exe file
